“Olly Olly Oxen Free” Lyrics

Dear day we met
I just made up my bed
And now
I’m kneeling by it

Dear last July,
You once were heavy,
But now I lift you
Over my head like a feather

It all depends
On whether you’re carried away
Or whether I pray for something
And hold on to today

I’ve never been one for chasing
Stars in the starry night
It just seems too easy

I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be
Fine when you want me
Yeah, for the last time

I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be

Fine when I’m free,
Yeah, for the last time

Dear consequence
Could I shake your hand?
‘Cause, man, you really got me this time
Oh, nights I’ve lost
Erasing parts tumbling toward the eye of the tiger

It all depends
On whether I’m carried away
Or whether I stand for something
And stick it to today

I’ve never been one for grasping straws
Or feeling lost
It just makes me queasy
I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be
Fine when you want me,
Yeah, for the last time
I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be,
Fine when I’m free
Yeah, for the last time

Make my head spin again
Throw me over the edge
It’s all in his kiss again
Just like momma said

I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be
Fine when you want me
Yeah, for the last time

I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be
Fine when I’m free
Yeah, for the last time

By Gregory and the Hawk, from their album: Leche (2010)
